As per its usual schedule, Tesla has pushed out its Full Self-Driving Beta 10.6 update this weekend to users enrolled in their program.

The update provides a detailed changelog of improvements, which includes better object detection, better unprotected left turns, better merging and more.

The full changelog reads:

  • Improved object detection network architecture for non-VRUs (e.g. cars, trucks, buses). 7% higher recall. 16% lower depth error, and 21% lower velocity error for crossing vehicles.
  • New visibility network with 18.5% less mean relative error.
  • New general static object network with 17% precision improvements in high curvature and nighttime cases.
  • Improved stopping position at unprotected left turns while yielding to oncoming objects, using object predictions beyond the crossing point.
  • Allow more room for longitudinal alignment during merges by incorporating modelling of merge region end.
  • Improved comfort when offsetting for objects that are cutting out of your lane.

James Locke is one of the first to upload a video showing the software in action, and was able to manage a 10-minute drive in a residential neighbourhood without any interventions.  See that below.
